Melatonin…Making Sleep Not Babies?!

Never say never, right.  Back in my old uni teaching days, I scorned the very notion of treating someone with 'actual melatonin'. Always in favour of upstream approaches over downstream, I was keen instead to give patients the 'ingredients & cofactors' so they could...

Should We Tell Them About The Sugar?

Well who'd have thunk?!  I had no idea cigarettes contain sugar and turns out about 95% of smokers don't either, according to this recently published article! Now while we're not purporting this is going to be of caloric significance enough to prove a deal-breaker for...

Spotting an ‘Off’ Claim in Record Time

Ready, Aim…Don’t Fire!

Oral sex. There I said it.  Last month when I talked about Helicobacter pylori and where people might 'catch' this - if they didn't inherit the little critter from their mum or family as an infant - we thankfully were able to rule out kissing as a source of...

Blowing Over On A UBT

A few months back I seriously 'blew over'. Not on an RBT but on a UBT (Urea Breath Test).  In spite of it being not the kind of test you want to score top marks for, my result was in the high 2000s, when all I needed was around 800 to confirm, and anything over 50 to...

The Best Form of Charcoal

This weekend I re-experienced an incredibly potent therapeutic intervention firsthand.  We drove 40 minutes inland to vamp under the stars (that's between camping and glamping and has nothing to do with vaping!) That was a good start. Breaking from the 'norm', looking...
